Has anyone else been watching this latest attempt at repealing the ACA. The replacement bills just keep getting worse and worse. Some of the GOP sentaors are even admitting that they don't care what's in it as long as they can say they repealed the ACA
Trouble is all the health care and insurance groups are against it. The people in the states are against it. And now, the medical directory in ALL 50 states are against it. You probably couldn't get those guys to agree if the sun was shining or not.

Unless if it snows...then they would all agree that it's snowing, and that it's proof that global warming is a hoax.
Jimmy Kimmel, of all people, has been waging a very public one-man war against this bill and its lying scumbag promoters, and is inflicting heavy damage upon it and them. You never know who's gonna step up at a crucial moment...

True. Jimmy Kimmel is taking this personally after his son and isn't in the mood to pull any punches.

Well it looks like it dead for now. But I've already read where they may try to attach a repeal to the tax reform and do the same parliamentary thing so they can pass it with a simple majority. So it's not over yet. At least until mid terms next year and we can vote some of these losers out of office.

Which just became a lot more likely with the drubbing of Mitch and Trump's favored candidate for Sessions' former seat in Alabama. This is going to embolden the far-right to run candidates angainst the "establishment" right in brutal primaries, stretching their resources to be able to take on the Dems in the fall.
The "establishment" incumbents will spend lots of time and money fending off attacks from their far-right primary candidates, and be forced to move to the right to curry far-right votes. Which will then blow up in their faces when they try to portray themselves as less extreme right-wing in the general elections.
Watching the intra-party GOP blood-letting promises to be great entertainment. Stock up on popcorn.

Moore's win spells trouble for GOP establishment in 2018
MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Insurgent Roy Moore’s rout of incumbent GOP Sen. Luther Strange in Alabama’s special election Tuesday has senior Republicans bracing for a wave of resource-draining primaries across the map that could undermine their best-laid plans to defeat Democrats in 2018.
Moore’s win — over an incumbent who benefited from millions of dollars in spending by a super PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — is certain to provide fuel for conservative challengers lining up to take on sitting senators in states like Arizona, Nevada, Mississippi.
The result was a major setback for President Donald Trump, who went all-in for Strange in a state where the commander-in-chief is overwhelmingly popular. And it emboldened Trump’s former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, who said the Alabama race is the opening front in a pitched midterm war against GOP incumbents — and an opportunity to undermine his nemesis, McConnell.

Graham blew his "I'm a Republican not as shitty as Trump" image with this one. Son of a bitch talks well. Like Jerry Falwell kindly saying AIDS is God's wrath on gay people. I want the next nominees to be Mitt Romney and Terry McAuliffe. They're not ideal, but they won't f**k things up.
